Answer:
  • Quark is an elementary particle (a particle which has no further sub-particles) which combines to form composite particles like hadrons.
  • Hadron consists of quarks held together by a force which is similar to the intermolecular force.
  • Hadrons are classified into two types the baryons which are, made of three quarks, and the mesons, which are made up of one quark and one antiquark.
  • Subatomic particles like proton and neutron are the major examples of baryons.
  • There are six types of quarks, known as flavours of quarks: up, down, strange, charm, top, and bottom.
